    Massively diminished nymphs

    ahhh thanks! I've totally taken them out of my hatch tank now as I don't think they are needed as much until they are bigger and create more mess

    Massively diminished nymphs

    I know it sounds like I'm clutching at straws but if the buffalo worm population got too high could that also be a reason?

    Massively diminished nymphs

    Sorry forgot to mention that. It's a Dubai roach. And no as it's a plastic slippery surface around the side and egg carton only goes to around half way up the container.
  4. 2 months ago I emptied my breeder tank containing around 2-3,000 nymphs. These were all together in a separate tank and fed and kept as normal. When I went to clean today there were around 200 left and 5-6 silent adult crickets in the nymph tank(I work at an insect farm so this is not uncommon). Could they be eating the nymphs?

    Black carpet bug infestation

    Yeh they are the ones ? They don't seem to be doing much to the skins laying at the bottom of my tanks unfortunately. When I split my breeder tank down next week il see what sort of damage they have done in terms of the amount of nymphs. I think they are more of an annoying pest than a hindrance tbh. Thanks
  6. As you can see from the title the warehouse where I work has been infested with black carpet beetle for upwards of 5 years now and Is pretty much immovable. They are now massively prevelant in all my colonies and I am wondering if they can damage them in anyway? Such as eat the nymphs etc.

    Dubia cockroach sorting

    I work for an insect company in England and we have tonnes of springtails so that wouldn't be a problem. Is it hard to seperate the springtails from the nymphs etc when sorting? I just don't want my bosses coming down on me hard if I mess this up ?. Thanks for the quick reply.
  8. Dubia cockroaches Hi people, i could really do with some advice regarding breeding cockroaches. I've got my breeder tank set up and everything is going well. One problem I have encountered though which I cannot for the life of me find a solution to on the web is that of separating the exoskeletons from the tank. This is causing me a problem when trying to filter through the nymphs and other sizes as the cases block up the bucket and the adults seem to cling on the them. The way I have been doing it is singlehandedly separating them which is a very time consuming job as you can imagine. Any advice and guidance welcome. Thanks
